    Ay so I was driving my motorbike and my phone fell out my pocket and got ran over by a car!

    I picked it up, tested the screen and it's all fine!

    Apart from the camera, there is a scratch on the lense and when I go to the camera app the camera is stuck In focusing can't click anywhere to focus, it just won't unfocused from its current focal point!

    Any ideas on how to fix this or will they need to replace the lense?

    Seems a bit odd how the screen didn't crack or break by the camera seems to not be focusing?

    I look forward to your replies!

    The camera's focus module has moving mechanical parts. They are moving a build-in lens for focusing.
    On your phone this lens is stuck, I think.

    The scratch on the camera's glass cover might not impair if it isn't in the center of the glass cover.

    I thought so, is there a way to unstick the focus?

    Best case, the lens is stuck because of the falling off your bike. Might be go unsticking with some rattle of the phone.
    I'm guessing you tried this already ;)

    Worst case, the car's weight has bent temporary the phone's polycarbonate housing, but has bent permanently parts of the focus module.
    I'd ask a repair shop.
